Knowledge Zenith (KZ) impressions thread

    I swear those tubes were on the WA22 I demo’d it with the Abyss Phi and accidentally burned myself touching it!

    Hopefully, I can get a ALO CDM to go with my ZSA. :wink:

    I’m hoping KZ will start making the metal faceplates of these new models look like the CCA CA4.


    I like the smooth look. It just looks classier and less tacky.

    The zig zag lines of the ZSN, ZSN Pro, ZS10 Pro, and the wavy curves of the regular CCA models just don’t look as good IMO.

    Of course sound is most important above all, but KZ clearly does spend a great deal of effort working on the aesthetics of their gear. Color combinations, physical appearance, etc. So I know the look is just as important to them as the sound.

    The physical looks do play a role in what audio gear people buy or don’t buy.

    I know people who purposely avoided buying any of the ‘exposed circuit board’ models (ES4, ZS10, AS10, etc) because they hated now they looked. Although I would have just changed out or painted over the circuit board faceplates if the sound justified owning them. And I know others who won’t try the EDR1 because of the way they look.

    So that stuff is definitely important to people, which ultimately does affect sales numbers.

    I would not own these Estron/Timmkoo earphones because of the ridiculous way they look. Even though they’re reported to sound good.

    Anyways, just some random KZ thoughts.

    Had an opportunity to by CCA CA4 and ZSN Pro tonight for $10 each. I stayed strong and didn't give in, but it was tough.

    Caved on the BQEYZ KC2 for $25 though.

    The ZS10 have the best separation and soundstage of any KZ IEM while still maintaining a perfectly acceptable sound signature. I will be purchasing the ZS10 Pro because I really dislike the ZS10 shell and physical design. I hope the sound characteristics are matched on a good level. Where did that giant crossover board go?

    I actually like both the sound and look of the Estron es670 that you pictured above. So much that I bought a couple of spares at $7/piece. They are almost as good as my precious Estron/Timmkoo/Joyplus c631. Off course those are also quite "unique" in the looks department :)

    Are KZ Graphs accurate? I feel like this is what the original ZS10 sounds like too. Original ZS10 are up there with the ZS6/ZS7 absolutely. I think the ZS10 is almost a better ZS6. It can do everything. I just got them back from a friend who was borrowing them and was happy to see the new design because of the anxiety I get from the short stem.

    Just bought the newest batch of KZ ZST Pro

    it comes with a new cable (looks better IMO)

    also from the FR i see they are different sounding.

    so far im liking these. its really really good.


    Bass 9.5/10
    Mid 7.5/10
    Treble 8/10

    i would recommend these to anyone. really good to complement MH755. this is a fun IEM to listen with. not as much detail (IMO) compared to MH755 but its good enough and they make freddie mercury sounded better than MH755 (which is all im asking for)

    I was just thinking today that since CCA started putting their brand name on their earphones that KZ should be getting more sales around the world (eventually).

    When someone sees a KZ with no obvious branding all they can do is wonder, "What brand are those?"

    New batch? Lol. What year is this? 1999? :wink: Most people are already on the KZ ZS7, CCA C10 and C16. And, staying there. :wink:

    Don't you hate it when someone posts about a deal but doesn't say where? I guess they forgot this is a KZ community.

    It sounds like my ZS10 were improperly made because nothing about them is acceptable and I have 10+ KZ earphones that are fine.

    Hey, you will probably be annoyed with me for saying so, but I find both of these comments slightly rude.

    In fact, if this is a community as you said, why would you laugh at someone?
